Indee honoring late two-time champ

Two-time Independence (Iowa) Motor Speedway champion and hometown driver Greg Hunter, a 20-feature winner at Independence and among the track’s winningest drivers in the IMCA Late Model division, died July 9 at an Iowa City hospital. He was 64.

To honor Hunter, Independence promoters have scheduled a memorial race with a total purse of more than $10,500 gathered from promoters, fans, sponsors and track supporters. The winning purse is $1,777 with significant bonuses and other cash awards.

Hunter worked as an assemblyman for John Deere in Waterloo for many years and was a member of the UAW Local No. 838. He and his father Leonard Hunter Sr. were inducted into the Independence Motor Speedway Hall of Fame in 2018.

Among survivors are two daughters and two sons. The funeral was Thursday, July 14. Visit white-mthope.com for a complete obituary.

Editor's note: Updates with new purse totals.
